whichever's laying around on craigslist with the smallest turbine housing

oh and a welder, an angle grinder and some old exhaust pipe.
Bolts right up.

ETA: oh right they make that cast iron T3 log manifold, so don't even need to weld anything other than maybe a downpipe if you don't feel like ditching the hood.

I have an 1856 with a setup very similar to yours. See signature below.

Never felt laggy to me.

Not a 100% PnP, but I would do what it takes to make either of these GTD1752vrk turbos work.

End of story IMO!

Agree that newer gen VNT and ball bearings are better, but for 100% plug & play Xman turbo offers traditional 18/56 turbo for less $ (600 euro).

I'll second what 3L3M3NT said. The GDT1752VRK is not plug and play but is well worth the little bit of work required to fit it. I've had one on my jetta along with .240 hflox nozzles and 11mm pump for close to a year now and love it. Much better spool and bottom end pull than stock. Not sure how much is due to the turbo and how much is the larger nozzles but these turbos are very nice for a daily driver while still capable of a respectable top end.

I would buy a cheap gtb1756v of ebay and adapt the downpipe to suit with new flanges. Build a log manifold to clear the cylinder head and use a dark side developments oil feed and drain pipe. Very good low down spoil and enough headroom to support 200-220 Bhp. If you have the time the gtb2056vl from the 2.4d Volvo is even cheaper to buy and has the extra benefit of being water cooled as well- nice feature to give extra heat in the cabin on cold winters !

Certainly not plug and play, but I'll second the GTD1752vrk simply because it'd be awesome to see someone post about it on an ALH! Not sure how much differently it might behave, but the 1752vrk is capable of full boost (2.1bar) by 2k rpm on a CR. 1752 can take a bit more EGT (1700F, same as stock GTD turbo on the ea288 family).

Agreed on the 1752, I'm really trying not to buy one for my BEW but your boost logs sure aren't helping

After paying close attention to all of your comments about turbo upgrade plus doing other researches i think im going to purchase GTD1752VRK turbo, there is a company the other side of the pond that sells them with the ALH manifold ready to go, ADV turbo is called, anybody knows if it is a good source to get it from? Now I need to see about how to get a source for the downpipe, has anyone here installed GTD on the ALH, maybe I can gather where to get the downpipe and air duct pipe, this is probably be the major hick up to this project.

Any more comments about turbo/downpipe or if you guys think i am making the right choice on turbo pls chime in, I really appriciate it

Smart man on going with the GTD1752VRK.

Where are you located?

Since I'd be willing to bet there's a shop in your area that could weld you up a DP for your car. When you get the turbo or ask ADV for the outer diameter of the compressor inlet and buy the correct 90 degree reducer that goes to your current TIP(if it still fits) and if it doesn't, then again hopefully the shop that can do the DP can also weld you up a custom TIP that goes to your airbox.

You could always check the regional forums on here, VWVortex, and nowadays Facebook if there's anyone out there that could help you out with your project. It's pretty amazing what some guys will do for beer as long as you provide all the materials.
